This exhibition examines the Fort Worth mid-century art scene through the presentation of more than 30 works by Fort Worth artist Charles Truett Williams and the artistic community drawn to his studio salon. Accompanying the works on paper and sculptures are ephemera from the recently acquired archives of Williams.
Dallas photographer David H. Gibson has been capturing the beauty of the Southwestern landscape for more than 50 years. Morning Light: The Photographs of David H. Gibson takes us to two of his favorite sites, Cypress Creek in Wimberley, Texas, and Eagle Nest Lake nestled in the mountains east of Taos, New Mexico.
Over the summer, Texas–based artist Justin Ginsberg created a glass sculptural work inspired in part by the Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass exhibition. At a glass kiln on the Museum’s lawn, Ginsberg pulled glass threads then installed the threads in the Carter’s Main Gallery, resulting in a large-scale glass “waterfall” sculpture.
Darryl Lauster’s Testament, a bronze obelisk, asks the viewer to be a critical reader of information and to look at the function of text in different contexts. Combining pop culture references with quotes from U.S. foundational documents, Testament questions what we know about our nation’s history and promises.
When you enter the Museum, take a moment to marvel at James Surls’ otherworldly sculpture Seven and Seven Flower, a complex portrait of family, land, and self.
